[More Music for the Headless Horse] Cynifree – Sights Unseen | Experimental Downtempo

It’s so good to get a contribution to‘s compilation album More Music for the Headless Horse from Cynifree, who nailed the theme and mood so well with an experimental track about the many mysteries of the Everfree Forest! This musical journey takes us through the narrows paths and spooky places of the forest, with a deep bass reflecting the unsettling atmosphere, and Nightmare Night-like melodies for a full immersion! Gotta love initiatives like these so much.


One Track Mind – Nightly Mares EP | Electronic

Just in time for the spooky holiday, One Track Mind brings us six great tracks to really get into the Nightmare Night spirit! This extended play uses a great array of dynamics to convey an overwhelming, almost helpless at times emotion throughout a very exciting set of songs.

The first track, Nightfall, does an incredible job setting up the feel of the rest of the EP, introducing an exciting, horror themed soundscape that flows beautifully into the second track.

Edge of the Forest is an exciting track right up until One Track Mind flips it on it’s head and gives the track a somber, chilling finish.

Unloyal starts off like a disco track and runs with that theme, managing to be eerie in it’s upbeat style. About halfway through the soft, terrifying feel of Edge of the Forest comes back to top off the track with that familiar fear feeling.

Fluttering Lullaby is an intense, more powerful track. The synth is on-point with the tense drums, invoking imagery of someone slowly losing their mind.

Black Heart Purple Fur changes up everything with narration over top of a distorted, stop-beat intro. This song is more laid back from the rest of the EP, and utilizes a high, ticking noise to induce anxiety throughout.

Giggles in the Dark wraps up the EP very nicely, like you are racing out of the woods, not knowing if you will make it or not. This track incorporates great dubstep wubs and has several moving parts that keep it interesting and intense!


FilledSilhoutte – Annexation | Ambient

Part of a new upcoming concept album, “The New Form”, Annexation is a delightful Ambient song that really sets an incredible atmosphere with those deep synths and also hoofsteps. Icing on the cake, the electronic experimental/psychedelic synths near the end are reminding me of early electronic music pioneers such as Klaus Schulze, and it’s a real bliss! Read about the story of this track from the description of FilledSilhoutte’s upload, and get hype for the impending release of the album!


Koron Korak – Vicious Circle until inner Emptiness | Dark Ambient

Now here is some fantastic work of art from Koron Korak. It’s not just a 18-minutes progressive Ambient song… It’s not just a spooky experience in the dark… It’s not just a heartfelt expression of an inner Shadow… It’s all of that at the same time!! In collab with his brother Cerebre-Arkor who has drawn all those amazing artworks used in the video, Koron crafted this Dark Ambient experience of sounds and visuals in the purest meaning of art, and it’s really worth it to sit and watch the whole thing, with headphones and in the dark. A piece like none other, it’s a stunning example of creativity and dedication!


Mane In Green – Haiku (feat. Wubcake) | Orchestral

A real delight from the heavens, Mane In Green’s newest piece feels like a gentle night breeze of the autumn wind at a Kyoto temple in Japan. It portrays Rarity reflecting while gazing at the harvest moon there and making haiku, voiced by the one and only Wubcake. Mane’s humming blends with Rarity’s in the second part to sublimate the atmosphere, and along the haiku and progressive instrumental of many wonders, it’s a real bliss to immerse ourselves in the scene thanks to the music. A scene that is pictured so well by the amazing artwork drawn by Mane himself! Check out his DeviantArt. A wonderful tribute to Rarity overall indeed!


Viricide Filly – Uality | Downtempo

Viricide always brings something unique to the table and “Uality” is no exception! Its got that sharp wonky feel I’ve come to know and love with a deep atmospheric vibe to it. In her own words, “Imagine a binary star system. Two orbs of light orbiting around each other. Without one, the other cannot go on.”  Its a rather intriguing way to describe this track as it sets the mood and really gets you thinking and fits really well with the theme of ‘Yet Sightless’ in my opinion; As it follows Eleanor on her journey to find self knowledge and love.


John Doe – Circle of Rockets | Orchestral

That gamechanger official figurine from Hasbro starring Trixie and Starlight riding a rocket will never stop inspiring the community! John Doe joins the game with a gorgeous and progressive Orchestral track depicting the scene and delightfully covering a melody that Final Fantasy 13 players will recognize for sure. Portraying the rocket launch and the friendship that those two share, to then perhaps depict the concept of space in the last ambient part of the song, its progression definitely tells a story!
